This is the board above my desk. I look at it all day long. It holds pictures of those I love most, a few notes from family, and a small set of prayer flags. Some have noted with surprise that there is only one quote on the board. This seems strange, I guess, for someone who loves words, quotes, poems, and lyrics as I do. I think it just shows how I value these lines, possibly above all others.
It may be that when we no longer know what to do,
we have come to our real work.
And that when we no longer know which way to go,
we have begun our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
– Wendell Berry
